Multi-media, cyber security and espionage were some of the exciting topics on offer at this year’s Computer Science and IT Summer School, which took place on June 20th, 2017.

Over 40 secondary school students attended the one day event, providing them with an opportunity to engage in fun, interactive and informative workshops.

Participants also had the opportunity to learn about game development and took part in an informative Q and A about the CAO and getting in to university.

The Computer Science and IT summer school is designed for senior cycle students to engage their creative skills and imagination into what is possible through technology.

It assists students in deciding whether a degree programme in computing at NUI, Galway meets their expectations of an exciting, dynamic career in the industry.

Results from a survey carried out on the day showed that the summer school gave them a better understanding of GY350 and the reality of undertaking a computer course at university level.
